Action Alert: Defend Alberta's Eastern Slopes from Coal Mining

Tuesday, October 27, marks the first day of the joint federal and provincial hearing for Benga’s Grassy Mountain Mine. The decision from this review will set a precedent for the future of coal mining in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes. AWA, along with many other concerned individuals and organizations, believes that the Grassy Mountain Mine proposal should be denied. It threatens the ecological integrity of Alberta’s Eastern Slopes and has negative repercussions for the quality of life and social well-being most Albertans are fortunate to enjoy. 

Take Action

As part of a Day of Action against coal mining in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes, AWA is asking you to participate in a “telephone blitz” of federal Environment Minister Wilkinson’s office. Defend Alberta’s wilderness and wildlife by supporting this initiative. Call, email or write a letter to Minister Wilkinson’s Parliament Hill office on October 27 to express your concerns about coal mining.

Some say as few as five calls or letters on any given subject is enough to get an elected official’s attention. Help AWA ensure that thirty to forty times that many contacts are made to federal Environment and Climate Change Minister Wilkinson on or around October 27 to support the Day of Action.

Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
